It's pretty for sure...
But Army Group fates being decided by company sized battles?

Okay first point.... who in their right mind would set up a hex based wargame with little cardboard pieces outdoors with long grass. One gust of wind.
Second point, grab a copy of Gargy Grigsby's War in the West. It's hex map covers all of Europe and North Africa and would be pretty suitable. The game includes the BMP files so you could stitch together the whole map for a campaign. The scale would still be a little off for CM but you could get away with each battle representing a brigade sized engagement. The campaign map would also be around 10k x 10k pixels I'd say.... very rough guess.
I've also just had an idea for an ongoing casual club event....
